You Ask, We Answer: Quick Shine® Q & A

Quick Shine® Floor Care products are fantastic tools to revive and keep your floors looking new again!  Just like any other household product, customers might have some questions about it.  So today we are covering some common questions asked by our consumers.

Q:  I saw your commercial on TV.  Where can I find your Quick Shine® Floor Finish or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Luster product?
A:  Our Floor Finish and Hardwood Luster are in most major retailers and some of your local ones as well.  Check out our Store Locator to see all the retailers where you can purchase our product.

Q:  When I was applying the Floor Finish to my floors, I sat the bottle on my table and it has dripped onto the surface.  How can I get this off without damaging my table?
A:  Anytime you accidentally get any drops of our Floor Finish or Hardwood Floor Luster on your table or counter, even after it’s dried, you can use Windex or Formula 409 to remove it.  Spray it on the area, let it sit for a minute or so then wipe it up with a damp cloth or sponge.  This method also works for customers who might have any over-splash on the bottom of their walls or appliances when applying the Floor Finish or Hardwood Luster on their floors.

Q:  What can I use to clean my floors with after I’ve applied the Quick Shine® Floor Finish?
A:  Routine cleaning using our Quick Shine® Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner via our Multi-Surface Spray Mop and microfiber pad is the best process.  However, after applying the Floor Finish we recommend waiting 4-5 days before using the cleaner on your floors to give it time to fully cure.  You can always dust mop during the first few days to keep your floors free of dirt and debris.

Q:  I used the Floor Cleaner on my floors, but they are not shiny.  The bottle says Quick Shine® so can you help me understand what went wrong?
A:  This is a common misconception.  Quick Shine® is the brand name of our Floor Care products line; however depending on what your floor care needs are will depend on which Quick Shine® product you’d want to use.  If you are looking for a floor cleaner, you can use our Quick Shine® Floor Cleaner or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Cleaner as a regular cleaning agent.  If you are looking to give your floors a shine or to revive your hardwoods, you can use our Quick Shine® Floor Finish or Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Luster to give your floors that WOW factor.

Q:  I applied the Quick Shine® Floor Finish to my floor and now, it looks streaky and cloudy.  What did I do wrong?
A:  Streaking is usually caused by a few issues: 1.) Not enough product was initially applied and you can correct that with an additional coat; 2.) There was residue on the floor before the Floor Finish was applied.  For example, other brand floor cleaning agents, or a vinegar solution; 3.) The same applicator pad used to clean your floors is being used to apply the Floor Finish; 4.) Not allowing sufficient time before applying subsequent coats; 5.) Trying to apply too many coats in a short period of time, not allowing each coat to dry completely.

    I love the shine on my laminate wood floors; unfortunately, my dog’s nails put scratches throughout. Any suggestions besides removing Quick Shine?

      Hi Joy,

      Have you tried applying a new coat of Finish over the scratched areas? Unfortunately if that has not worked for you, removing the finish is the best alternative as the scratches are etched into the finish.

        Hi Debbie,

        You can repair small areas of the floor with 3-4 tbsp. of Ammonia and 1 cup of HOT water. Apply this solution to the affected area and allow to sit 3 minutes before wiping away. Once the area is clean and dry, simply reapply a new coat of Finish to even out the appearance again. This method has worked for other consumers with similar situations.

        Loved my wood floors at first with Quick Shine, then my mom came with her walker and made streaks – which I thought could just be taken care of with another coat of quick shine….wrong
        it’s not working. There should be a warning on your bottle that you need Quick Shine Deep Cleaner before putting on another coat and it should be available where I purchased the product to begin with. Really bummed that I can’t find it and need to order on line. I have company coming in two days and don’t have time to get it by then:(
        My floors are a mess….

          Hi Kathy,

          Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you have to remove the finish and start again. Unfortunately retailers decide which products they will allow space for and we have no control over that. Walmart.com has quick shipping and best pricing right now. You can also try 1 cup of Ammonia with 1/2 gallon of HOT water as an alternative solution. Simply mop solution on 5′ area, allow to sit 3-4 minutes and mop away. This method has worked for other consumers needing to remove the finish in a pinch.

        Hi Magz,

        Try soaking your pad in a mixture of Ammonia and HOT water for about 30-45 minutes and rinse with clean tap water. The polymer should dissolve from the fibers and soften the pad again.
